Gooooooood morning, everybody!
Yes, it's 8:01 a.m. and no, I'm not really that chipper. I am still working my way through my first cup of coffee. Given the night we had, I'll probably need three or four to get through the day. I went to bed way too late after dinking on the interwebs and finding an interesting web story of some Scottish fellow from the turn of the 20th century who lived in Malaya, fell in love with a local girl, and then suffered a horrible bout of malaria. I really didn't expect to read all 6 chapters, but I did. Then I checked my email before bed and discovered that my best friend had sent me a link to this neat website called Shelfari. It's basically a virtual bookshelf and I have to admit, it's pretty addictive as I finally called it quits at 1 am. Oops!
Michael and I were awoken about 3 am from a loud whirring noise. Turns out Michael had somehow jammed the remote for his side of our sleepnumber bed under his pillow and activated it with his noggin whilst sleeping. It scared the bejeezus out of us and I had to laugh. Billa manages to find the remote occasionally and press the button which scares her silly (this was how the remote got under his pillow in the first place); now we know how she feels!
Billa came in about an hour later and Mommy spent a very frustrated hour and a half trying to get her to go to sleep. Finally, I got so mad I picked her up and took her to her room. Michael comforted her after she got up from there and let me have an hour or two of blessed sleep.
And after all of this, it has been quite the eventful day so far. Billa has already bumped her head once, had two meltdowns, broken two glass votive holders and managed to cover the bathroom floor in milk and then proceed to "draw" in it. [sigh] And it's not even 9 am!!! I need more coffee.
In the meantime, enjoy the picture of Billa playing keyboard!
